    Nine Inch Nails will not be performing 

    at the MTV Movie Awards as previously announced. We were set to perform “The Hand That Feeds” with an unmolested straightforward image of George W. Bush as the backdrop. Apparently the image of our President is as offensive to MTV as it is to me. See you on tour this fall when we return to play in America.

    dear dave grohl,

    i understand that mtv has chosen you to replace NIN as a performer at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards.

    perfect.

    heres what i would do if i were you.

    first id get your band to soak themselves in mud.

    then you need to also soak yourself in mud and lower yourself from the ceiling rotating on your back like trent in the closer video.

    then i want you to unfurl a huge portrait of the president george bush, exactly the same one that trent wanted to display before mtv remembered that dear leader could snap his fingers and the fcc could find something to start using viacom as an atm

    and then dave grohl you and the foo fighters should break into “god save the queen”

    heres the lyrics

    God save the queen
    her fascist regime
    It made you a moron,
    a potential h bomb.

    God save the queen
    she ain’t no human being
    There is no future
    and england’s dreaming

    Don’t be told what you want don’t be told what you need
    There’s no future no future no future for you

    God save the queen
    we mean it man
    We love our queen
    God saves

    God save the queen
    cos tourists are money
    And our figurehead
    is not what she seems

    Oh God save history
    God save your mad parade
    Oh lord God have mercy
    all crimes are paid

    When there’s no future
    how can there be sin
    We’re the flowers in the dustbin
    We’re the poison in your human machine
    We’re the future
    Your Future!

    God save the queen
    we mean it man
    We love our queen
    God Saves

    God save the queen
    we mean it man
    There is no future
    in england’s dreaming

    No future No Future No Future for you
    No future No Future No Future for me

    No future No Future No Future for you
    No future No Future No Future for you

    not too many artists are in your position mr. grohl. nirvana’s catalogue will sell forever. meanwhile youve already made a fortune from the foo fighters, a treasure trove no one, im sure even yourself, expected.

    mtv are gutless cock sucking pansies dying to bend over to the will of those who snap their fingers the loudest.

    there used to be a time that the rock star called the shots and the suits stepped and fetched it.

    how many times during your working week do you have a chance to be punk rock and stand up for what you believe in while sticking it to the man who is treating you like a second choice and a safer pick?

    please do the right thing and f them like animals.

    nin videos + england’s dreaming + i would never bother you
